“I want to thank you and your wonderful staff for all the kindness and caring you have shown to our family over the years. My mother was with you for eight years, my sister for five years, and now you have taken care of my brother for six years….All the residents are made to feel that they are family and really important to the staff. Most important, the residents never lose their dignity. Cape Cod Nursing is a really exceptional place. Your staff,  from nursing to the kitchen and cleaning crew is the very best. My husband has always felt comfortable recommending you to his clients and our friends. In every case, we have received good reports and thanks. Your facility is the best in the area. Well done.”

Former NHL star Jay Miller, who played for the Bruins for parts of four seasons, came to Royal Cape Cod Nursing and Rehabilitation Center after a severe bout of pancreatitis that threatened his life. A month in the hospital had left him extremely weak, but therapist Dave Newman and the rehab team at Royal Cape Cod matched their skill with Jay’s determination to go home.

“I was too weak even to walk when I got there, but Dave and his team worked me hard, and I could feel myself getting stronger every day.  I was treated quite well, the food was excellent…it was delightful, and I don’t use that word lightly. I would recommend Royal Cape Cod not just to an ex-athlete like me, but to anybody. They take you where you need to go to get back home. That was my goal, and the Royal helped me get there.”

“There are no words to sufficiently convey my appreciation and utmost professional respect for Sheila Ostiguy and her team in the care of my aunt, Shirley Swett. During her stay, I personally observed my aunt as being treated with nothing but respect and dignity by Sheila and her entire unit. This was in addition to the very fine medical care and technical expertise exhibited by her nursing team and aides. Reflecting on the final minutes leading to my aunt’s passing, I realized that I was intentionally permitted the opportunity of being left alone with her, which was an experience I’ll never forget.”
